My SIL had to race back to the hospital last Friday and Saturday because the baby turned Jaundice. She went to three different hospitals before she got someone to treat the baby and take an U/S of the baby's head after the suctioning to get her out during delivery.
The baby is home, doing well and on formula to boost her Vit D, much to the dismay of my Psycho MIL who insists that all babies be breastfed until they go to college.
This week SIL is feeling the tension and strain of being a new mom. She's asked that her friends and family come over every day and help her care for the baby, cook her dinner and stay with her until her DH comes home from work.
We'll try to get over there this week with a cooked meal to help her out, but she has many more years of care-giving, I hope she realizes that being a mom isn't about people admiring her big belly, giving her pretty baby things and congratulating her on her beautiful baby. I'm afraid she has a long learning curve ahead of her.
Mommy to the most wonderful boy, 7 yrs old.
